Workshop: Concepts, Intuitions and ‘Manifest Reality’ (September 11th-12th, Padova)

We are glad to announce that an international workshop entitled Concepts, Intuitions and ‘Manifest Reality’ will take place on September 11th-12th, 2017, at the Department of Philosophy, Sociology, Pedagogy and Applied Psychology (FISPPA) of the University of Padova (Palazzo Liviano, Sala Diano).

The workshop will be devoted to the recent volume “Manifest Reality: Kant’s Realism and his Idealism” by Lucy Allais and the aim is to discuss two crucial problems in the interpretation of Kant’s philosophy, namely the relation between idealism and realism and the problem of non-conceptual contents, through the reference to Allais’ book.

The event is organized by the PhD Seminar “Letture Kantiane” of the University of Padova, in collaboration with the Società Italiana di Studi Kantiani.

Here, you can download the flyer or the complete program of the workshop.
